even if there are no real demons.
I floated a poorly-fleshed out diary a while back in the midst of other violence, and I'm just going to lay it out here again to see if it looks different in light of the recent events.
I came into political awareness in while living in North Carolina, where Jesse Helms always got re-elected by small, narrow minds who only had to hear him repeat three things:
- Things are bad all over.
- That group of people over there, "THEM", they did it all.
- (the third step was self-initiating as the fear and anger took over)
We - anyone who's not a RW kool-aid consumer - are being villified as the root of all evil. This "go get 'em that fucked up your country" hysteria may be gaining enough inertia that it can't be stopped before the blood really flows.
I don't know.
